Chapter 749: Not closing one’s eyes for three days
Mo Chuan returned to the stage. Although his expression displayed no emotions, Chu Shao Bai who was familiar with him found a bit of strangeness.
“Emperor, what has happened? Why did Zhui Feng come here? Could it be…..”
Before he even finished, Mo Chuan took a deep breath and closed his eyes.
“Gone? What does that mean? Emperor, please speak clearly?” Chu Shao Bai was shocked.
Mo Chuan repeated everything Zhui Feng had said with calm eyes before saying, “She openly walked out like this. She wore the maid’s clothes and escaped under everyone’s eyes like this.”
Chu Shao Bai heard this and was stunned for a while before saying, “It can’t be, right? Why would Ning’er sneak out like this? Could it be she wants to compete with the East Qin Crown Prince?”
He knew that today’s competition was just a fake. This was not a true competition because he knew Chu Shao Yang could not bring her out at all.
If Chen Ning did not appear, the competition would naturally be cancelled or postponed.
But if Chen Ning were to really appear here…..
Mo Chuan slowly shook his head. He remembered the body and whimsical plan Chen Ning had shared with him before and a chill ran down his back.
It would be better if she really did come here, but he was afraid that she wouldn’t come here and would go somewhere else!
“This one is worried that she will…..”
His words stopped there because he heard the sound of horse hooves in the distance. His heart suddenly came up and he walked to the edge of the stands, looking at the source of the sound.
Chu Shao Bai followed by him and also sat a fast running horse enter the field.
“It’s third brother, third brother came!” He muttered.
He could see extremely far and could see that there was only Chu Shao Yang on the horse. Chen Ning’s figure wasn’t with him, causing his heart to jump up and down.
When the West Chu ministers saw Chu Shao Yang, they all revealed looks of joy. However, when they saw that Chu Shao Yang was alone, the smile on their faces froze.
The ministers began to discuss with each other.
“Where’s the Princess Consort? Why is she not here?”
“It wouldn’t be that his highness didn’t allow his princess to appear, right? Last time he said his princess was sick, perhaps he’ll find another reason to not let her come this time!”
Chu Shao Yang walked up to the stands step by step in front of everyone’s strange gazes.
When everyone saw his appearance, they couldn’t help being stunned.
His magnificent purple robes was covered in dust and it had turned grey in colour. His face looked haggard and his eyes were bloodshot. His muscles were tense and his eyes were listless, like someone suffering from a serious illness and he looked like he had climbed out of a pit.
He had always attached utmost importance to his clothes and appearance, always making himself look dazzling and in high spirits. The ministers had known him for this long, but they had never seen him in such a sorry appearance.
The people that secretly hated him felt happiness in their hearts when they saw him like this. Their faces had smiles as they greeted him, appearing to be very concerned for him.
But Chu Shao Yang turned a deaf ear to all their questions.
He walked right in front of Mo Chuan. His hands at his sides tightly clenched into fists as his heart was filled with hatred.
Three days, an entire three days that he had not closed his eyes once!
He sent out every person he could send and searched every corner of the capital city. He even searched in all the villages within ten miles of the city, but he still could not find a single one of Chen Ning’s hairs!
